“Lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Carbery Cottage is a lovely place to stay. Mike and Julia are very welcoming hosts and the house is in a great location. Room and bathroom were very nice and the breakfasts were excellent. It was lovely that our dog was made welcome too.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed for one night in this magical place and loved it! We live in Cork and run a small B&B ourselves, so we really appreciate what it takes to run a B&B. We took one night off from our own place to have a break, and we could not have chosen better. Mike and Julia have a wonderful place and the only problem we had is that it was only for one night! The room was comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding and the hospitality second to none. Add to this the unsurpassable beauty of Sheep's Head and you can't go wrong. Highly recommended.

I can't say enough about Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge! I come back year after year for a very good reason. The location is heavenly, the B&B is exceptional, and the owners are absolutely wonderful. It's the perfect choice when staying in Ireland. Mike and Julia, the owners, are so accommodating. Not only that, they are incredible cooks. I highly recommend including meals in your stay. The self catering cottage on the property is also a must-book, if that's what you are looking for. And just when you think it can't get any better, there is Carbery Sailing. Take a trip out on the yacht, it will be a highlight of your life! Don't think twice when booking this B&B. Staying here is what travel in Ireland is all about!

This is the place to stay while you are in Ireland. I stayed here few times and it was a always a great experience.
Food is excellent, scenery is stunning and hospitality at its peak.
I would strongly suggest spending time here. You will be at home.

In october 2011, me and my boyfriend stayed in this B&B for two weeks. The house is incredible, the views to the sea are ver nice, the rooms are very comfortable and Mike and Julia, the owners, are just amazing. You can also eat there, and I highly recomend it, because they are very good cookers. It is one of the best places i have ever stayed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I stayed here with my husband in Sept 2011 when we attended a wedding in nearby Blairs Cove. I was 8.5 months pregnant at the time, so this was our "babymoon" of sorts - we were very happy with our choice of B&B. The location is pretty far out but as I was driving it was not an issue. The room was super comfortable and the views out of the bay were very scenic.

We were very well taken care of - we were served our breakfast in front of the TV at our request as Ireland were playing Australia in the rugby world cup - it was the most delicious home cooked breakfast ever, like your mother would serve you as opposed to the type of brekkie you get at hotels were everything is sitting there for hours...freshly made brown bread, a selection of jams & marmelades, plus delicious Full Irish.

We slept so well there as the location is super quiet and the beds are very comfortable.

Would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for the one with the view over the bay!
